    How Long??

    i was wondering how long it would be before opengl 2.0 is released. i was thinking about getting the red and blue books but am a bit hesitant seeing as a new version is on the horizon.

    what do you guys recommend, getting the books now or is it only a short while before 2.0 is released ??

    I would imagine that Red/Blue books would take a while longer than OpenGL 2.0 to come out. If 2.0 comes out this fall, then books would probably not be avaliable until at least spring of 2003.

    hum, i was waiting for a new edition aswell.... how about opengl 1.3? i know, there are too few changes, but a new book edition would be good, right?
    can anyone suggest other books? i'd be interested in a more advanced book than the red book, cause i can access to the red book...

    tnx folks,
    Tolga.

    No point. You may as well buy the books and get the specs for 1.3.
